Breaking Away: On Secession and Small States

Radio Rothbard
Ryan McMaken

Until the day comes that a majority of the population wants to abolish all states, it makes sense in the meantime to look to ways that will reduce the power of states, localize that power, and take at least some of it out of the hands of some of the most powerful ruling state elites. This episode of Radio Rothbard features Ryan McMaken’s talk presented at the Mises Institute 40th Anniversary Supporters Summit in Phoenix, Arizona, on October 7, 2022.
